Warm New Year’s greetings to you, and may 2021 be full of new hopes and good times for all of us.
In support of enhanced public health measures by AHS and the City of Edmonton, the facility remains closed to the public until further notice. We are hopeful that with the pending vaccine, we will be in a safer and healthier position to offer classes for the spring session, which is scheduled to start on April 19th. Our staff will continue to work remotely on planning for the spring session.
With that in mind, the following adjustments have been made for 2021 Memberships:
All valid 2020 memberships purchased from January to March last year will automatically be rolled over into 2021 memberships. Memberships that were purchased from September to December will be credited to your account. Reciprocal memberships that were purchased will also be credited to your account.
New 2021 55+ memberships will be available for purchase in March for a pro-rated annual fee of $25, Under 55 memberships will be available at a pro-rated fee of $50, and Community Memberships (Reciprocal Memberships) will remain $5.
Please check our website, watch your email and call us 780–496–7369 to learn of any updates as we try to remain flexible and responsive to the measures required to keep us safe and healthy during this pandemic.
Until we meet again . . . stay safe and enjoy the daily additional minutes of light.

As requested by our CLSA Member Ted H., a repost from Letters to the Edmonton Journal to provide a little perspective during this time of social responsibility and physical distancing and isolation:
“I am currently reading Heather Morris’s book The Tattooist of Auschwitz which tells of a young 15-year-old Jewish boy yanked from his home by the SS. He is sent by cattle car on a three-day journey with standing room only to Auschwitz. As he speaks several languages, he is given the assignment of tattooing all incoming prisoners, many of them young men and women. As they want to keep him healthy, he receives a full bun a day along with morning gruel. Reading of these terrible atrocities it brings me shame to imagine I am hard done by having to isolate for a year. I am surrounded by all the conveniences one would ever imagine. Certainly, my wife and I who are in our 80s would love to hug our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren again but this situation will pass. We are indeed blessed.”
